The 2017 Ducati Panigale R maintenance schedule and service intervals — sourced from the owner’s manual.
Regular maintenance for the 2017 Ducati Panigale R
This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).
Using the motorcycle under extreme conditions, such as very damp and muddy roads or dusty and dry environment, could cause above-average wear of components like the drive system, the brakes or the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged. Therefore, this might translate in required service or replacement of the wear parts earlier than specified in the scheduled maintenance chart.
Every 1000 km/600 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:
|Check brake fluid level|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication. If necessary, contact your dealer
to adjust components.
|Check chain and sprocket for wear. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace
|Check brake pads. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace components.|
2017 Ducati Panigale R Maintenance Schedule Table
The following is the list of maintenance operations and to be done on this motorcycle with a distance or time interval — whichever comes earlier.
This maintenance schedule is in the same format as in the manual, though altered to fit this screen.
This scheduled maintenance chart is designed for a road use of the Panigale R. If it is used on the track, even if not during sport competitions, all parts of the motorcycle are more stressed so the routine maintenance operations must be carried out more frequently than indicated.
Please contact a Ducati Dealer or authorised Service Centre where you can receive customised service advice according to the sport use you make of your Panigale R.
The distances and times are mentioned below. Whenever the first of either the time or distance interval is reached, the maintenance is required.

General Information on the 2017 Ducati Panigale R
Similar to the 1199 Panigale R, the engineers have made use of lightened crankshaft having a larger crank pin and tungsten balancing pads. With increased bore and stroke, the 1285cc has a raised compression ratio of 13:1, thanks to the 116 mm diameter pistons, titanium con-rods and machined crowns.
A new forged aluminium clutch basket has been used to give the rider heightened ‘feel’ and stability to use a clutch with a new slipper and self-servo system. Through this, all the power made is transferred to the wheels via a 6 speed Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) gearbox with auto blip and lightweight and soundless chain. Thanks to the full Ride-by-Wire system, integrating spark advance and injection adjustment during upshifts with an auto-blipper function during downshifts makes for a smooth, instant and uninterrupted power surge across the power bands.
